The nation of "Israel" is described in Egyptian hieroglyphics (King Merneptah`s Stela, 1200 BCE.) A stone inscription in Aramaic referring to battles with the "House of David" was uncovered in Israel's northern border at Tel Dan. Never in history has there been an independent Palestinian nation. During the Arab Caliphates and Ottoman rule, Palestine was a sparsely populated and neglected province of a distant empire. Scratch the surface of the land of Israel and you will uncover Jewish life under Roman rule, not centuries of Arab civilization. We have returned from exile to settle in our land where astonishing archeological discoveries of our heritage are now commonplace. No nation on this planet has a greater right to their territory, than the Jewish people have to the Land of Israel. The Arabs are indeed occupiers of our land.
